Re-entry Vehicles (Single Occupant), often referred to by it's initials "REVSO", is carried by Dragoon-class Assault Transports, as well as other similar vessels. REVSOs are used to deploy troops from atmosphere to a planetary body. REVSOs utilize a series of ablative plates that burn off during re-entry to protect the occupant from the excessive heat of reentry. To protect the occupant from ground fire, the pod carries light armor plating, with chaff and flares to confuse thermal imaging and radar, while using radar absorbent materials to hide the actual pod itself from radar. While the occupant is within, they are kept up to date with information from a series of largely passive sensors embedded within the surface of the pod.
